Lats night i replace my heatsink with a bigger one because my cpu was running a little warmer than i liked. This is something i have done many times but obviously there is a chance that i may have damaged something although i doubt it.....
It booted up fine first time last night and everything was running super cool etc Job done.. Or so i thought.
This morning i tried to boot up to check my emails:
Post - Fine
Bios Screen - Fine
Black Screen with Flashing Cursor in Top Left.....
Rebooted, went into bios. No HDD detected.
I realise that my first port of call when i get home is to check the drive, make sure its plugged in properly and see if i can hear drive activity.
I just wanted to see what u guys thought? Could it be anything else?
Tried a windows disc and it didn't get far enough to boot from it, which i felt was strange as windows disc would boot with only a blank HDD installed, so why not boot with mine?
Any advice or comments would be appreciated, when i get home i prolly aint gonna have internet access as my PC aint working, so i wanna get a few ideas in my mind before i go home :)
Edit: Should mention that when i changed the heatsink over i got a Warning: CPU Fan on bootup.
I physically checked the fan and it WAS working and the cpu was running very cool, so i pressed F1 to resume and it all seemed fine.
